Current Favorites & Thoughts

Happy February everyone! January was a rough month for me in the blogging department as I was NOT consistent with posting on a regular bases. However I woke up this morning with some fresh ideas, motivation, and creativity. January was not the easiest of months for me which I am not totally sure why because so many amazing things happened. January was a VERY busy and exciting month. I celebrated the new year in Massachusetts, I celebrated my sister birthday, I traveled to Florida for a week, I flew to Baltimore for an interview & took the job offer (more to come on this as I never updated you on this), I began my second semester of school, I officially got initiated as a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha, I helped with a large fundraiser for a school organization and more! Though I will stop their to keep from boring you. With all these exciting things going on I still had the "post Christmas blues" as I am going to call it. I often felt down, sad, and just in a funk. Though I am ready to make this month the best yet! So if you are with me and didn't get off to the best of starts in the new year that's ok. Here is to a new month and a fresh start! 

I thought I would kick the month off with a current favorites post to share some things I have been loving lately considering I have not posted anything in almost a week ;)

Nautical Wall Hanging: I bought this sign at Target a couple of weeks ago to hang in my dorm room and I absolutely love it. I hung it right above my bed and I things its so inspirational and nautical!

Valentines Day Gift Guide

Long time no blog post but I am finally back! I have been so busy these past few days with school and I took the weekend off from blogging and basically just relaxed. You might remember in my last post that my first week back was a bit hard so I took a much need break. Thank you for your understanding.

I literally cant believe that Valentines day is only a few weeks away! All the stores had all their Valentines candy and cards out when I went shopping of course so I felt inspired to create a Valentines Day gift guide. I hope you enjoy & let me know what's on your Valentines wish list. Sending you lots of love from Melchicmay!

Winter Break Florida Trip

I am finally back after taking a few days off to get settled at school for the spring semester! It is only the second day of classes but I am already quite busy. So I will probably be blogging only a few times a week now that I am back in school.

As you may know I went to Florida for a week before school started back up again to visit my grandparents. I had lots of fun and I am wishing it was not 10 degrees with snow here :( While I can't magically bring warmth back (sadly) I did take some fun pictures while I was away that I thought I would share with you!

I hope you enjoy basking in the warm weather for a few minutes ;)

Friday Favs

Today I am sharing another edition of Friday Favs which is where I show you random things that I have been loving or wanting recently. These things can be anything from fashion to music and anything in between! I love doing these posts and I know you love reading them so lets hop into another edition of Friday Favs.

Also I feel like it has been forever since I have posted an outfit of the day but that is because I have been away and have not really been trying too hard in the fashion department! Though be sure to check back tomorrow for an outfit post (I promise)

Florida: I don't think I have mentioned it on the blog yet but I have been in Florida since Sunday visiting my grandparents! I head back home this Sunday and then go right back to college. I am ready to start the spring semester though it will be bitter sweet leaving. As you all know I LOVE the warm weather. My trip has been nice and relaxing. I will be sure to share some pictures with you after my trip. Also make sure to follow me on Instagram to get some "sneak peak" pictures from my trip!

Activewear Inspiration

I don't know about you but lately I have been dying over all the bright colored new activewear for the new year! I really think some bright colors and some cute fitness clothes can help keep you motivated to workout. I hope everyone has been trying to stay healthy and motivated. Though I know it can be hard so I thought I would give you some super cute workout gear & inspirational quotes to get you inspired to stay on track! If you have not been doing so hot that's ok you have all year ;) If I am being honest I have worked out maybe 4 times since the new year because I have been in Florida (shh it's our secret)! Anyways I hope everyone has been having a good week and I would love to hear of an tips you have for staying motivated!

Exciting Blog Update

Guys I am SO EXCITED for today's blog post as I feel like I have been waiting for this day forever! After 2 very long months I finally received the email that Melchicmay now has it very own app in the app store! Yep you read that right if you have an Apple device you can download my app in the app store. This will allow you to access everything to do with Melchicmay all in one spot including my blog, Instagram, Twitter & YouTube account! I apologize to anyone who as an android phone but right now the app will not be available for you to access ;( 

I have to give a HUGE thank you to DWNLD who made this all possible! They were amazing with answering all my questions (shout out to Amy), basically creating the whole app and submitting it to the app store for me!

My Travel Toiletries

I decided to film this video last mixture tonight but I thought I would start a new series sharing with you what I pack when I travel. Since I am always sharing with you my trips I thought why not share my packing with you as well! So to start this series off I am sharing with you everything I bring & pack for my cosmetics. I don't love how I organize my toiletries but I wanted to at least share with you what I usually bring. As I update my system for packing toiletries I will be sure to share that with you as well!

New Years Resolutions For 2016

As I look back on 2015 and the resolutions I set I realized that I accomplished so much and am so  proud of what I did. Last year here on Melchicmay I shared my resolutions with you. While I never thought I would complete even half of my resolutions I am happy to say I completed more than half! I think my biggest accomplishment in 2015 was my health. I started going to the gym a couple times a week & I even ran a 5K this fall! I feel so healthy and proud of my body. In 2105 I also improved my blog a lot, traveled to many places, surrounded myself with only my closest friends & I really tried to live each day to its fullest! 

Moving onto my 2016 resolutions I am going to break them up into two categories professional (blog, School, Work) and personal! I want to have more specific goals pertaining to my professional life so I decided to make two categories. So here are my goals for 2016...
